Ruling On Proposition 8

Tuesday, May. 26, 2009 3:47 AM

The California Supreme Court will be announcing its ruling on Proposition 8 at 10AM.

Even though State Attorney General Jerry Brown filed his objection on procedural grounds, I will be surprised if the ruling is solely based on procedural issues - that is, is it an amendment or a revision to the state constitution - and not the measure's constitutionality.

And seriously? When the teenage daughter of a Christian vice-presidential candidate gets knocked up, then becomes a glamorous 'face' for the abstinence movement, the problem isn't same-sex marriage.

Update: The California Supreme Court has upheld Proposition 8. However, the Court also affirmed the 18,000+ marriages conducted between May 2008 and the passage of Proposition 8 in November.

Advocates for same-sex marriage say they'll be taking this back to the voters, while the traditional marriage crowd clearly expressed that they will fight any attempt to weaken or modify Proposition 8, which suggests they will be seeking to nullify those marriages.

While Memorial Day weekend is over and we're all back to the mundane 9-to-5 drag (figuratively for those of us who hit the road at Oh-God-Hundred), here's an online project/tribute to those who have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan, and perhaps put it in perspective.

It's called Map The Fallen.

Likewise, when the lesbian daughter of a former vice president gets thrown under the bus in the name of politics, that's just proof that the veep in question is damaged goods.
